relayor v0.4.0 is released.

relayor helps you with running relays with minimal effort (automate everything).


This release contains important changes for exit operators
that define their own exit policy, please _do_ read the changelog
if you are an exit operator using relayor _before_ upgrading since
it requires a minor configuration adjustment.

If you do not change the default value for tor_ExitPolicy
no configuration change is required.

Changes since v0.3.3:

- major: change the format of tor_ExitPolicy (single-line to multi-line)

previously it you defined the exit policy like:

tor_ExitPolicy: "accept *:80, accept *:443, accept *:22"

now you define your exit policy like this:
  - accept *:80
  - accept *:443
  - accept *:22

- support multiple IP addresses for OutboundBindAddressExit
- add support for OpenBSD 6.3 (drop 6.2)
- add support for Ubuntu 18.04 (drop 16.04)
- add support for Fedora 28 (drop 27)
- drop support for Debian 8 and HBSD
- increase min. tor version to 0.2.9.x

- switch tor_alpha_version from 0.3.3.x to 0.3.4.x
- Debian: switch to HTTPS (from HTTP) for repository traffic 
- reorder some torrc items
